Comparative Policing — Istanbul vs. Spokane
Posted by Arroyoribera on September 12, 2007
Now this ought to be fascinating.
Too bad it was never published.
Does the Turkish National Police (TNP) use tasers as effectively as the Spokane Police Department (SPD)?
How would the TNP handle a colleague who was housing an international child pornographer and sex offender in his basement three blocks from a high school and three blocks from an elementary school?
What would be the reaction to a female police chief by the TNP?
How prevalent is officer vs. wife violence among Turkish National Police officers?
How do you say “donkey kick” in Turkish?
What sort of sentence would a Turkish court give to a Turkish cop who shot a Kurd in the back of the head after having left a gay bar while drunk at 3 AM?
Abstract: This study aims to examine organizational climate, job satisfaction and work place stress in the Turkish National Police. The survey is adapted from a sample administered by Washington State University for Spokane Police Department. In general, the results are known for the police departments across the U.S. Therefore, this study points out the differences between the U.S. police departments and the Turkish National Police in terms of the research coverage.
